    Serial Modbus RTU Protocol to Modbus TCP/IP Ethernet Converter for PLC, HMI, SCADA,  etc.

    The model PC-E Protocol Converter (Serial Modbus / Ethernet) is an interface to bridge Serial Modbus devices, such as Future Design Controls FDC-IO Series (Digital / Analog IO to Modbus RS232/485) to computer hosts running Modbus/TCP on Ethernet networks (10/100 Base-TX Ethernet network). The PC-E may be connected to multiple Serial Modbus devices and multiple PC-E converters may be connected to Ethernet networks.

    Fully compliant with Modbus/TCP, the PC-E offers a convenient solution to connect existing devices or controllers running Modbus Serial protocol (Modbus/RTU) to an Ethernet network.

    The Ethernet/Serial Converter can be configured to operate in a number of different modes depending on the application. It can be configured as a transparent data link or it can perform the gateway function of converting Modbus TCP messages to Modbus RTU messages.

    The PC-E allows OEM equipment manufacturers, system integrators, and end users to connect control devices with Serial Modbus ports to Ethernet networks quickly & cost-effectively.
